Resolutions adopted 1937 at Halle, Ger., by the Confessing* Ch.; concerns included the principle of confessing, confessions, ordination, and the Lord's Supper. On the Lord's Supper, it was emphasized that Jesus Christ Himself is the gracious gift in the sacrament; altar fellowship bet. Luths., Ref., and Evangelicals is not justified by the situation created by the Prussian* Union; separate altars for Luths., Ref., and Evangelicals are not justified in the light of 16th-c. controversies; altar fellowship has its foundation not in our understanding of the Lord's Supper, but in the grace of Him who is the Lord of it.
